Your Relationship with Your Fitness Routine

Why it's so hard to stay with your workouts long term

-Fitness Focus Saskatoon-

We've all got a different reason to include exercise and fitness into our lives. Maybe it was doctor's orders that you need to make some drastic life changes. Maybe you miss feeling as good as you did back in high school. If you're already athletic, you may just want to take things to the next level. 

Whatever it is that led you down this road towards improving or maintaining your personal health and fitness, there's one thing that we all have in common, which is that when we started we all had some sort of goal or outcome in mind. Treat your relationship with your workout like you would any other relationship in your life. At some point you may ask yourself, "am I getting what I need?"; so it's important to remember that what you get out of it will likely depend on what you put in.

What's the reason we give up on our gym regimen? 

Anybody that's ever started a workout plan likely never thought to themselves about whether or not they were going to still be working out a year down the road, or even six months for that matter.

A lot of the time, we just find it doesn't mesh with the rest of our life; it's a scheduling issue.  With work, family, extracurricular, life events or even that curve ball that life will inevitable throw at you; obstacles will get in your way and the easiest thing to do is remove health and fitness from your daily routine. 

What can you do about this?  

Since time, or lack thereof, is generally always the issue that causes us not to go to the gym and ultimately cancel a membership all together; how we use our time is the most important factor we need to control. So, plan and prepare!

“By Failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
